I thought I would kick off the new regular feature at Always Playing with Aurifil Thread, “Tuesday Treats”, with a list of Modern Quilt Guilds around Australia.
I am sure that, like me, you have been intrigued by the growth of the Modern Quilting Movement.
Initially I could not see the point in “re-inventing the wheel” and giving it a new name. I thought that there were already plenty of resources out there for people to learn patchwork & quilting and to meet like-minded fabric addicts BUT, as I began reading the blogs, and looking at the books, I started to appreciate the differences.
I’ve always loved colour, always found it difficult to make an exact copy of someone else’s pattern and much prefer simplicity to fussiness ….. I think modern quilting might suit me.
Now I can see that I need to start collecting more modern quilting designs such as this one by Lisa Calle which I found at: Digitech patterns
